A Broken or Damaged Timing Belt

When a timing belt loses a tooth it can mean expensive repairs for Reno drivers.The timing belt rotates the camshafts which open and closes the valves which allow air, fuel, and exhaust to flow through the engine as it powers your car when you drive around Reno.

Why Proper Maintenance Is Important

When an old timing belt loses a “tooth” in the belt it slips. The engine could stop or misfire. belt slips – or a broken belt – can be disastrous on some engines. In “interference” engines, open valves can get in the way of the piston when the timing belt breaks or slips. One or more valves can be bent when that happens, requiring expensive engine repairs.

It is important for Reno drivers to replace their timing belts as recommended in their owner’s manual to avoid unnecessary breakdowns. Ask the team of professionals at Wayne’s Automotive Center in Sparks if it’s time for your belt to be replaced.
